Abstract: About 10 years ago, Nature Trust, Unesco and I undertook urgent action to conserve the sand dunes at White Tower Bay. Today the site is in a shambles. Ten years ago, we had secured funds from Unesco so that the largest sand dune remnants in mainland Malta (second only to Ramla l-─Žamra in Gozo) were ring-fenced through a chain-and-link fence to stem rampant vehicle parking, camping and offroading on site. Several interpretation panels had also been installed on site, only to be vandalised within days.
